    Guten whirlpool arm fits and works perfectly on Robobrew 3 with internal pump. I get adequate trub cone and pump out to fermenter. No difficulties with blockages.

    Instead of buying a whirlpool arm and extra pump just raise the height of the inlet to the pump.

    WEAL. When you use the external pump/whirlpool setup do you still have the helix attached or have you flicked that with this method now? Thanks.

    External pump is not really a solution, the aim is to transfer good clear wort into the fermenter leaving the break material and hop debris in the kettle. The helix is a top idea, if you are using 'no chill' you will get clear wort but as the wort cools the break material shows itself. I don't give up on things, there has to be a simple solution, I have tried a few different methods using the helix (including the external pump) but hopefully the method I used on my last transfer may be the way to go in getting as much clear wort as possible out of the kettle into the fermenter.
